Welcome to Thursday's Pact Days! Today, we have the Asani. Yes, I'm going in alphabetical order. I thought that would be a good way to make sure that I didn't unintentionally place importance on a species and possibly give away spoilers.
For those who have read the series might recognize the Asani from Alpha Trine. They were Zeus's mechanic crew on the space station.
Something to note: I will leave off information on the species that will spoil future books. My standard sheet has the same categories for all species.
Other races on the planet: Occasionally the Numina are seen in the waters but no one knows if they have a colony on the ocean floor and the Asani won't speak of them. This is also a holiday retreat for other water loving species such as the Kracciam. Two of the strip lands has been set up for tourists looking for simplistic vacation destinations, looking for huts and nature and miles of sand instead of urban chaos.
Planetary Terrain: Vast oceans with underwater cities. There are long sinuous strips of continents that are the lands surrounding mountain tops.
Country: Uthary, Dushian, Aspais
Patron Ryo Pardeep: River
Description: Average height range – 2'9" to 4' (need to convert to meters) most are around one meter tall
The Asani closely resemble Terren sea otters although they are much taller with longer legs. They have gills that are clearly seen on those with lighter coats of fur. They are able to breath underwater but live just as comfortably on land. They have long whiplike bodies covered in sleek fur in varying shades of brown, gray, black, and white. Many have buck-teeth.
Dargon indicated they have breeding patterns as prolific as Terren swamp rats. They are very sensitive to pheromones. When trapped in an enclosed space with the lusty scents, the Asani behavior devolves into shameless rutting and public sex. They don't care who is around and believe the more the merrier.
First contact with the Gaziniti helped them to take to the stars. The cute Asani can be more deadly than their appearance would leave one to believe. Their society is divided into small tribes with the oldest living being the tallest and thereby the leaders whose word is final. The tribe heads gather 4 times a year to discuss issues and vote 5 of them to handle interstellar affairs.
The land strips criss-crossing the oceans have rocky hills, forests, and sprawling organic cities that are very green.
Common Occupation: love occupations that require teams so they can be around each other. Mechanics, Healers, Navigation, Hunter
Government Systems: Tribal
Current Leader: n/a
Council of Neighn of Member: Oko Thea
Oko keeps an entourage of at least 8 Asani with her in Haven. The halls are full of enticing scents and hormones. Swimming and being in the water helps but the days she must be inside on land, she needs the release. The emperors have made sure there are plenty of rooms set aside where the different species can "gather themselves together" when needed.
Allies: Numina, Kracciam, Gaziniti, L'Eema, Battion,
The Erdaians have recently been seeking an alliance with the Asani for trade in sea pearls and other ocean delicacies.
